    Last night vandals placed about 15 tires on the tracks that caused a CSX train to derail at Neshaminy Falls on the ex-Reading New York Short Line in Bensalem. One of the derailed cars fell across the SEPTA commuter tracks causing a disruption in service on the R3 West Trenton Line.

    This seems far beyond a stupid prank. More like a deliberate attempt to cause harm.

    Another case of, "They are good kids".

    Life. Life in prison. Deliberate sabotage of an American Railroad. Life.
